OS: Win XP Professional

When I start up my computer, it is supposed to load 15 taskbar icons, but I usually only get 4. If I log out and log back in it will load all of them. I don't know what's going on, except that my computer might be booting up too fast to load them all (I have done tweaking, naturally :thumbsup: ). I don't know if this would require a HijackThis post so I decided to check here first.

Your tweaking isn't working to good if you got 15 programs loading at startup.
Excuse the pun, I couldn't resist.. :thumbsup:

It could be things are loading to fast, but I doubt it. I would come closer to thinking they are interrupting each other during the boot process.
I suggest stopping some of them from loading at startup and start them manually after startup.

I stopped some things using msconfig, but there is one thing that worries me:

NvCpl RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

I'm pretty sure it has to do with my nVidia graphics card, but I know something of the same name can be malware.

That's a good thing, I think you will find that your boot process will go a lot smoother. If you continue to have problems, this could be an adware &/or malware infection causing the conflict.

but there is one thing that worries me:
NvCpl RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup

There is nothing to worry about this entry it is valid.
